September 14–16, 2011


High Performance Computer Innovation Center (HPCIC), Livermore Valley Open Campus (LVOC), Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore, California, USA



The mission of the workshop is (1) to prepare researchers to use and further develop the BOUT++ code for edge turbulence, transport, and ELM simulations of magnetic fusion devices; and (2) to promote effective collaboration within the BOUT community and beyond.


This 3 day workshop covers tutorial lectures for the basics of the BOUT++ code and tools used by BOUT++, special lectures on gyrofluid models, resonant magnetic fields, preconditioners, and topical applications by present BOUT++ users/developers. Some sessions will include an associated lab exercise using Linux machines.
